Muhammad Khan, a 10th-grade student at the Academy of Innovative Technology, has big dreams: he hopes to start an artificially intelligent robotics company. Similarly, Khan’s classmate, Mujtaba Ahmed, wants to land a job that protects people — and their personal data — from illicit activity on the dark web.

“The technology field is growing so much,” said Ahmed. “I want to keep taking courses and keep learning about the technology that I’m interested in, the technology of the future.” 

Both New York-based teenagers, who are part of the school’s IT and cybersecurity program, visited Kyndryl’s headquarters with dozens of their peers to learn about various careers in technology. Students met with Kyndryl leaders with expertise in cybersecurity, sustainability and artificial intelligence (AI), as well as other fields. This full-day event was part of a continuing partnership between the world’s largest IT infrastructure services provider and the Academy of Innovative Technology.

Todd Scott, a senior vice president at Kyndryl who helped guide some of the students, spoke with Khan and Ahmed about the power of technology and their career ambitions within the industry.
